Soldier, your eyes, they shine like the sun
I wonder why
Soldier, your eyes shine like the sun
I wonder why

Jesus, I saw you walkin' on the river
I don't believe you
You can't deliver right away
I wonder why

Jesus, your eyes shine like the sun
I wonder why

    General Commentwhoa that's kinda cool. It's like he's comparing jesus to a soldier. maybe It's like he's sayin that jesus is tired of people dying in war. Might be wrong but whatever.

    General CommentI don't think it's about Jesus tiring of war and death.... I always saw it as more of a denial in Jesus/God. I see it saying that Jesus is/was a mortal like everyone else. Obviously these might be the last thoughts of a dying soldier who can't understand why their Jesus or God hasn't saved/delivered for them..... That's my take.
